Mass die off of fish wash up in Walkers lake in Northern Grampians Shire, Australia #fish #Australia
Dead fish are lining the shores of Walkers Lake in Avon Plains.
A Northern Grampians Shire spokesperson said Council was aware of a fish kill event, involving redfin and some golden and silver perch.
In November, the Shire issued a warning for the lake after algal bloom was detected
The spokesperson said there was a significant algal bloom over the last month or so at the lake and there was a history of summer blue-green in the system.
“There has been some decomposing weed and blue-green algae present in the water recently and the likely cause of the fish kill appears to be a severe lack of oxygen in the water,” they said.
